I found the most incredible wedding dress. It’s handcrafted, designed by a local artisan, and made of marshmallows. Isn’t it awesome?
Well, not about the awesome part, or the marshmallows: this work of art, featured in the window of downtown Roanoke dress shop La De Da over the holidays, was pretty darn awesome. Created by owner Carole Hughes with the assistance of one of her employees, Robyn Gross, it made for a dramatic, even show-stopping, display.
Both beautiful and whimsical, the marshmallow gown does in many ways reflect the overall aesthetic I hope to create at our wedding. Nonetheless, I won’t be wearing this confection to walk down the aisle. (I hear there was a hot glue gun involved…ouch.)
So, what will I be wearing? Lots of folks have asked whether or not I have a dress yet. The answer is…
Stay tuned for next week’s post, to hear a funny story about my dress. 🙂
